3RD SUNDAY OF ADVENT: AN ADVENT PAGEANT: CRAZY JOHN OUT IN THE WILDERNESS

The good news is that we don’t do it alone. Just as Jesus claimed that the Spirit of the Lord has anointed him, which was true in a very particular way for Jesus, yet it is also true for us –
for this happened for and with us at our baptism. We have been anointed by the Spirit of the Lord, the Holy Spirit, which enables us to be guided in this Advent work of preparing our hearts for Jesus, by turning our hearts to others whom we are not, and carries with it the responsibility to anoint others with the grace and love of Jesus, for it is in the in-breaking of God’s kingdom by our bearing witness to each other, that the world moves toward salvation offered through us by the birth of Jesus, whatever account of it we want to read. Advent is a time, not only to marvel at what God did, but a time to marvel at what God is asking us to do to receive what God has done.
